Fun to know: The wonderful thing about Pumpkin is that although most people simply carve them into Jack-O-Lanterns, in the right hands they can be prepared into the most delicately flavored soups, appetizers, main courses, and desserts. Believe or not, the inspiration for this tea came from a spicy piece of pie. The unique profile of spiced pumpkin could be best captured by creating a base blend of high quality black tea and a South African rooibos tea. This seemingly unlikely base blend actually balances out the palate of flavors in this tea quite perfectly. The herbal character of the rooibos tends a mellowness that doesn’t overpower the subtle tones of our all-natural Pumpkin flavoring while the astringency of the black tea helps open the spicy tones of cinnamon, an integral component of the blend.
